Newkirk Ave Kingston Ny 12401 Usa
Cars are comming down Newkirk Ave. speeding, playing very loud music at all hours of the day and night and into the early mornings hours and cars are not stopping at the corners of Newkirk Ave and Maple St. They also come from Maple St. and not stop to go up Newkrik Ave.
I've seen kids come down Newkirk Ave on their bike's and one of these days someone is going to get killed. I've already had in the past and just last year, cars crashed into my gate and now into my fence. I've already asked to have the guardrail I asked to have installed, to have it extended around the corner. I was told that this will be done. I am also making videos of these problems to show if needed. Five DVD videos have been given to the police to look at, and each contains about 40 scenes.
Well, guess I will have to have my Aldermen, come down an see what is going on here. One night this year, police and undercover NARC's stopped a car for drugs and took the person to jail. So they know what type of people are coming done this street. The night they did this, no one came down this street for 6 hours. Yes, this is on video. A car started to come down this street when this action happened an it turned around and went back up the street instead of taking the side street at the top of the hill. Why, probably because it had drugs also.
Well, nothing has changed, this is still happening. I think one way to let people know what the rules are in Kingston, is to increase the fines. I think about five dollars might do the trick. This way it will be printed in the Kingston Daily Freeman. In fact I think a full print of all the rules for Kingston should be put in the newspaper every couple of years. In this way most of the people will get notice's of what the rules and fines are for the city. I also think once I a while, the police should put a road block up and see what the cars have for correct inspection and registration stickers on this street and maybe have a little sniff of what the cars smell like inside. I've had cars stop here and people go up to the Rondout Plaza and get drugs from cars parked there then walk back down to Maple street.
I been told that a Bar is going to open up on the corner of Newkirk Ave and Delaware Ave. This is not going to help this situation and in fact probably make it worse.
Cars are still coming down and have not stopped at the stop signs and still playing loud music and speeding.
Cars are still coming down but now there are some that Play Loud Music because there drug dealers have been arrested and now there not stopping at the stop sign.
Almost had a kid coming down on a bike and was almost hit by a car. Kids don't stop on bikes at the stop sign either. Might need to have a camera set up by the police department or city so these people can be given tickets by observation on camera because if anyone of these people see a car behind them they obey the law just in case it might be a police car, especially at night. This camera will bring a few extra $$ to the city to have it used for other things.
Cars are still doing the same thing. I also think a "Street Closed During Snow" should be done on Newkirk Ave, because of this problem an the speed reduced to 15 MPH.· Reported by Sal Musso · Flag Flagged

Spring Street @ Russell St. Kingston
Bad Situation.. I have asked my Alderman R. Senor to address the issue of placing stop signs on Spring at the foot of Russell St. Children in the area frequently come down Russell St. onto Spring Street into oncoming traffic, via bikes, skateboards, wagons etc. 0/2/16/15 condition still exist
There is a Stop sign on Russell, however many of the kids are to small to see it, or pay attention. Please Alderpersons and Mayor, lets protect these kids from getting hit by a car, or possibly killed.· Reported by Gerard Kelder · Flag Flagged
108 W Pierpont St Kingston, NY 12401, USAbad intersection to begin with, but there are double parked cars and kids darting into the street on foot, bikes, and scooters as lazy parents hang out on the sidewalk and porch. My hunch is there is an illegal daycare or babysitting situation going on there and kids are spilling into the street. This needs to be addressed before one of these children is hurt.· Reported by concerned · Flag Flagged

Col Chandler Dr Kingston, NY 12401, USA
I recently read the proposal for the new roundabout which is most likely to be installed at the intersection of Albany Ave. and Broadway in Kingston.
I think that any improvements made here will be good ones, because the intersection as it is now is antiquated and confusing to drivers who are unfamiliar with the area.
However, I do have a question about what will become of Interstate 587 (Col. Chandler Dr.)
In the proposal, it states that Interstate 587 should be changed to NY Route 587. My question is, why should it even carry the 587 designation, when it already partially has the NY Route 28 designation? Why not just rename the entire 1-mile section of Col. Chandler all Route 28?
I think it would be less confusing for motorists.
Also, in the proposal, it stated that it was being considered to re-configure Col. Chandler Dr. into a 2-lane road from the current 4 lanes and adding bicycle and pedestrian lanes.
I think this would be counterproductive, because in 20 years, this section would have to be widened again anyway, to accomodate the growth in traffic.
Let's not be penny-wise and pound-foolish about this, Kingston!! THINK LONG-TERM!!!· Reported by anonymous · Flag Flagged
100-160 State Highway 32 Kingston, NY 12401, USAThere is a large pothole on Albany Avenue. It is located just over the bridge, in front of the cemetary, as if you were headed for the malls. It is a large hole and will definitely do some damage to a car or bike.· Reported by seth · Flag Flagged
